West Seattle Crime Watch: Holiday hit-and-run investigation

December 26, 2011 at 10:46 am | In Crime, West Seattle news | 4 Comments

This year’s latest proof that “crime takes no holiday”: Burcu e-mailed late last night with word of a Christmas Eve crash (photos added 2:02 pm):

There was a hit and run late 12/24 (in the 4400 block of) 45th Ave SW. Two cars were hit by a Ford truck which we could see from the remains. We didn’t leave the house all day (Christmas) until 9 pm. There were 2 Priuses parked back to back … the left side of the back one was badly damaged and the back side of the car parked at the front was badly damaged. … Ford truck remains on the floor is all we have. There wasn’t any note left on any of the cars. The police is here writing reports now but if anyone has heard/seen please notify us at btunca@gmail.com. This is extremely rude, heartless and I can’t find words to describe how I exactly feel. What a gift on Christmas!

  1. Ouch! So sorry to read about this. I hope the (ir)responsible party brought to make reparation.

  2. Same thing happened to us a couple of months ago, they even pretended to leave a note, that was just scribbles.
